Nearest supermarket = you're not travelling somewhere else under the pretence of food shopping Thumbs Up

It’s to limit possible transfer from a ‘dirty’ location to a clean location, being in a car isn’t the issue, it’s what you do and touch at the other end. Although it’s inconvenient as the further supermarkets are bigger and have more choice I think it’s a good thing in slowing the spread. And as Alister said it helps stop the ‘we are just going food shopping’ and nipping off somewhere else.

It’s a very clear message here... no bike shops are open, no off licenses, no diy shops... just food and pharmacy’s... no going out in ‘family groups’, no going out to ‘exercise once per day’, no building work, no 30 GBP... Just stay home or get a 600 or 30,000 euro fine for the second offense.... then prison. It’s clear, not the bojo wish-washy lots of grey areas, very slowly rolled out.

The police are enforcing it here with vigor, everyday- you won’t get away with anything for long.


People are dying- stay home.

Anyone here old enough to remember the BBC series/drama "Survivors" from (IIRC) the mid 70's ?

During watching the series I said - "that will happen one day".

Mind you, a few of my other observations have also proved true. 2003 Range Rover Vogue TD6

Brexit and this crisis reminds me of the series Years and Years.

Maybe controversial but hey ho.

I would be interested in the following information;

On average 1400 people die per day in the UK (pre Covid). Are the current deaths in addition to this figure or an amalgamation.

I am only looking for a true representation of actual deaths attributed to the virus, only to assuage my concerns.

I am not taking away from the serious nature of the position we are in but maybe too much time on my hands .....

Keep safe

Spain 

The deaths are reported for only Covid deaths, a very small percent would have likely died anyway as part of the ~1400 ‘normal’ deaths per day so you can take theses as new and a over normal figures deaths.... so yes, in addition.

The daily norm figures would tend to trend down as the UK and Europe comes out of winter and the normal cold/flu season but you will see the numbers continue to go up day on day for the next few months.

Italy has been doing a lot of research on the figures with the main take-away being that the death and infection numbers a massively under actual figures for both, I.e deaths not being attributed to Covid19 that should have been but the lack of testing and resources means they just end up in the fog of this crisis. And no one knows the total infections due to the lack of testing, apart from South Korea, this is a global issue.

We went to the supermarket 10 miles up the road. Had all our forms with us which we are required to fill in with date and time and giving reason for being out. Limited reasons allowed for going out. Food being an obvious one. Roads were empty apart from a couple of cars and several lorries. Saw no checks.

Used this supermarket as the do Drive so didn't need to go into the shop. Ordered on line on Sunday and was given a time for today, Thursday. Got a text and email when order was ready.

All very smooth and minimal contact.

Suppose i could have put this in "what did you do in your FF" Smile John

Here in Spain it has got that bad in some regions they are choosing who to treat and just lettings those unfortunate enough not to be included pass away... this is horrible for everyone, families, the ill and the medical practitioners involved.

Just take note, this could be your country, your families or even you. Going out for a ‘jolly’ will make the situation worse for those around you.

Comment wasn’t direct at you Weegie, just the others struggling to comprehend social distancing and lock down.

I think the rest of Europe gets it, it’s the UK and US that still think it’s a common cold and life can go on as before.
